In the seven days, Dallas County added 5,293 new cases of the virus, to an average of 756 cases a day, a jump from the average 715 days reported on Tuesday. Wednesday’s 704 new cases are below the 14-day average of 840 new cases a day.

The 14-day average decreased for four consecutive days from 956 to 930 on July 26, to 880 on July 27, to 865 on July 28 and to 840 on Wednesday.

The county has now accumulated 48,732 cases of the virus since testing began in March. There have been 658 deaths attributed in the county to the virus, which, according to Dallas County Director of Health and Human Services Dr. Philip Huang, is now the third leading cause of death in the county since heart disease and cancer. As of March 20, the date of the first COVID-19 related death in Dallas County, the county had an average of five deaths per day.

According to the Texas Department of Health Services, an estimated 30,241 people in the county have recovered from the virus (as of Tuesday) and left about 17,869 patients known to be fighting the infection. The active case number will be updated on Wednesday afternoon.

Also Wednesday, Jenkins said in a statement that more than 1,800 children under the age of 18 were diagnosed with the virus in the first three weeks of July. During that same deadline, 38 children were admitted to the hospital including four in the ICU.

Of the cases requiring hospitalization, two-thirds of all COVID-19 patients are under 65 years of age, and about half do not have high-risk chronic health conditions. Diabetes was an underlying high-risk health condition reported in approximately one-third of all hospitalized patients with VOCID-19.

The county has been reporting for several weeks now that more than a third of COVID-19-related deaths have been among residents of long-term care facilities.
